The service was excellent, food is decent, but the prices are way too high. Kids meals are $10, and do not include a drink which is $3 more. Chicken fingers tiny and over cooked. Side of poutine for $9??? Unfortunately we will not be back as these prices are unaffordable for a family to dine out.

Since we just moved here... We've been running around alot. We look to find our place we can call our own. I come from a small town and I don't take away how hard it is to run a business. Ive been there 2 days. Ive NEVER seen such amazing people. What they do, in and out of the kitchen... More

We love eating at Bear's! JJ is a wonderful lady, they have terrific food, mostly made from scratch. "Best Reuben Ever". Great variety in the menu, everything from homemade pot pies to breakfast, to steak. The atmosphere is great, reflecting their love of music and free wifi. And the homemade pies... We will be back next summer!

This is where the locals eat. Everyone but us seemed to live in Kimberley. I think that says a lot about the place. I had the "All day Breakfast" for $9.95 which consisted of 2 eggs 2 pieces of thick cut toast and 5 yes 5 pieces of local bacon, as well as some fried potatoes. My wife had the... More

This is truly a hidden gem in Kimberley that I would highly recommend for the food and service. You will not be disappointed. Make sure to leave room for dessert, their banana cream pie is to die for.

We look forward to our next visit to Kimberley,... More

Since moving to Kimberley recently this diner has been on the "must check out" list, and I'm so happy we came in! My fiance and I shared soups, split pea and farmers sausage, and two pieces of pie. The soups reminded me of my grandma's, hearty and perfectly seasoned! The pie, oh the pie! As a baker I find that... More

This place has a magic all its own. It was great as Mary's kitchen and now the décor and atmosphere is even better as Bear's Eatery. Food selection was awesome and everything tasted great. Awesome place for family or friends to go for a meal and hangout.

We were in Kimberley for a weekend ski trip and everyone was starving after a full day on the hill. I Was a little sceptical as the building could use some updating but so glad I gave it a chance! Large menu made it hard to choose but I went with the chefs famous pot pie. Kids had the chicken... More
